Professor of Sports BUSINESS suggests they should be cutting the funds from the revenue generators first before dropping total loss sports. While I get the theory, not sure I can agree with it. Hypothetically, if you cut funds in the revenue generating sports and then they fall off, the impact is going to be more severe when that reaches critical mass I'd think.

I get what you are saying, but it would be a bitter pill to swallow if you were the men's tennis coach and the school cut your sport to save 250,000 a year while paying the football coach 5 million.

I agree but that's just business, right? I equate the same thing to allowing the power schools to rake in cash, cheat and it be business as usual. The NCAA and member schools need to make a decision in the near future with regards to this.
